At Mad About Makeup we’re always itching for natural makeup fixes and have been lucky enough to indulge ourselves in products from Inika Cosmetics – a luxury Australian skincare and cosmetics brand.
Using the highest quality and safest ingredients, Inika have won various international beauty awards for their deluxe skincare and makeup ranges. We are so very impressed with their ethos and mission statement, and salute them for possessing the ability to ensure that all of their products are certified organic or vegan, (or both). They didn’t stop there either, Inika’s products are also certified halal and cruelty free (so no need for any animal rights campaigns here!). You can’t get much more ethical than that, can you?
Enough about their story and how ethical they are, you see, we don’t just like them for that reason (shock horror) – their products are so wonderful, you really should try them. We did, and we have a funny feeling they’ve earned their place in our makeup bags for years to come. Mad About Makeup tried Inika’s Mineral Foundation Powder, Mineral Foundation Liquid, Mineral Blush, LipWhip and Mineral Eyeshadow and fell in love with them all.
The Mineral Foundation Powder is great for those days where you simply don’t have time to be messing around with liquid – all you need is a kabuki brush and in just a few minutes you will (like we did) transform your dull complexion in to a bright soft-looking and flawless one.
The Mineral Blush comes in a handy little puff pot and has a very bright pigment, meaning a little goes a long way. It’s not like any blusher we have used before, it produces a glowing youthful look without being too vibrant like some can be, it creates an almost-inner glow. Using this mineral blush is so easy and very tidy (there was no mess at all in fact) – we even attempted to apply whilst sat on a fast-moving bus, and did so without any problems. Inika’s Mineral Blush is certainly a great little natural beauty buy.
After trying the mineral powder, we were skeptical about Inika’s Mineral Foundation Liquid, why – we are no longer sure! We applied it before a night out on the town and paired it with Inika’s Mineral Foundation Powder and Blush, creating a glamourous evening look that ensured maximum coverage. It stayed on all night long, right through to the early hours and kept us looking fresh-faced. With this look, we also used the Mineral Eyeshadow in Thunder to create dark dramatic eyes, it really is amazing how well all of Inika’s products compliment each other.
Oh… and we cant forget the oh-so-luscious LipWhip in Apricot, well…what can we say? It’s smooth, silky and shimmery, we’d even go as far as saying it’s everything a girl could ever need in a lipgloss or balm! Inika’s LipWhip is packed with vitamins and minerals which kept our lips feeling soft and intensely moisturised. If we had to rate it, we would give it a 5 out of 5. Seriously!
Keep you eye out for Inika this summer, they are raising their profile both in the UK and worldwide, with their product ranges expanding rapidly. We’re following them on facebook and you can too! Inika Cosmetics are available to buy online at Inikacosmetics.co.uk and prices start from around £10.
Grab yourself a little ethical luxury and tell your friends too Mad About Makeup certainly have… and we look and feel great!
